Hire Artist for Garage Mural?

Our garage door is prominent and boring, and the paint is peeling anyway. I had a thought of hiring an artist for a mural, which my partner thinks would be cost-prohibitive. Has anyone done anything like this lately? I see some fairly new art along the Ohlone Greenway. Wondering the process and cost. I would like to support local art and artists!

Check out Unlimited Murals based in Oakland. My co-worker had a great experience with them. I believe pricing is based on the size of the mural and varies on what you would like painted. https://unlimitedmurals.com

I hired Nakari Zion, a local Richmond artist, to do my back fence.  He does holiday windows for local businesses.  You can find him on FB or through Rich City Rides in Richmond.

Definitely contact Pancho Pescador (AKA Peskador). You will see his beautiful, colorful life-affirming murals all over Oakland! https://www.instagram.com/Panchopescador/  

Pancho was hired to do a mural on the building across the street from me. Here's a photo:

An amazing talent. He can be reached via Facebook as well.

Good luck!

Jet Martinez is a local artist, he's done many murals in the East Bay. You've probably seen his work around town.
